And, again, --if the Sabbath-day of the Jews did not mainly represent that of God's rest after the works of creation, it is but fair to infer that, as the " to-day" mentioned in the seventh verse, appears to point to other times, so did it to another day, in which mankind should as such, and not as Jews, celebrate the praise of their common...show more
